Is it ok to often use antibiotic cream on the skin for itch?I often use fusidic acid cream

Not recommended: As harmless as an antibiotic cream might seem, it is actually absorbed into the skin and the rest of the body. That means different germs 'see' this medication and can generate resistance to it - which may be an issue down the road. (Hopefully never but you can't predict the future). Better to find out what exactly is causing the rash and base your treatment on that. A dermatologist may be of help ...Read more

Probably not: You are having an allergic reaction to a topical antibiotic cream. Stop usung it and take an antihistamine if you are red and itching. Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) zyrtec, claritin, or Allegra can help this. When the allergic reaction stops it will go away and your skin will not hyperpigment. Avoid ever putting antibiotic cream on your face it is oily and can cause acne. ...Read more

Cuts are other thing: angular cheilosis or cuts in the corner of the mouth can be fungal, can be caused by a vitamin deficiency, can be caused by an overclosed bite or dentition, or a number of problems. If the antifungal cream was used for 2 weeks and did not work may assume that it is the wrong medication or it is not fungal. An Oral Surgeon should be seen. ...Read more

Depends on skin type: In hungary you are probably a lower fitzpatrick score type 1 or 2 and you should be able to tolerate any skin abuse. Red patches should clear up and leave no problem if this is an allergic response. Hyperpigmentation usually occurs secondary to an invasive skin procedure like chemical peel, cosmetic laser. ...Read more
